Priscilla Presley had company on Monday when she walked the red carpet at the Met Gala with Elvis star Austin Butler.
The ex-wife of 76-year-old Elvis Presley has continued to show her support for the 30-year-old actor after his performance as her late ex-husband in Baz Luhrmann’s autobiography Elvis gave a superb review just days ago.
Priscilla stunned the iconic Manhattan fashion event by wearing an elegant black dress that made her look years younger than her age.
Still has it: Priscilla Presley, 76, surprised in a mostly black group as she walked the carpet at the Met Gala in Manhattan on Monday with Austin Butler, 30, who plays ex-husband Elvis Presley in a new biopic
Priscilla’s black satin dress embraced her embellished figure and a floor-length skirt.
She wore Prada head-to-toe, and her sexy dress was brought to life by the shiny, vertical straps shining on the midriff.
Her long sleeves are decorated with thick shiny gold ribbons, which go perfectly with her gold pointed heels.
The actress wore her elegantly layered burgundy locks straight and bobbed at the bottom as the strands rested on her shoulders.
Priscilla completed her dress with a matching thick black headband, and carried a black triangular Prada clutch.
Supporting her was Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star Austin Butler, who plays her late ex-husband Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s long-awaited biopic Elvis.
Black and Gold: Priscilla wore a head-to-toe Prada dress, a long black dress that hugged her curves and gold high heels.
Accessories: Priscilla completed her dress with a matching thick black headband, and carried a black triangle Prada bag. She was supported by Austin Butler, who plays her late ex-husband Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s highly anticipated biopic Elvis.
Like Priscilla, Austin represented Prada in his black suit.
The unusual ensemble featured a shirt-like jacket with a scarf-like satin lapel, along with long sleeves that partially swallowed hands.
He wore shiny black leather boots for added shine, and had his blonde hair styled in a messy way on top and blotched again on the sides.
She also joined Priscilla at the Met Gala as she was a male friend who has been seen spending time with her in recent years.
Many of the merits of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Institute, also known as the Met Gala, are considered the “Super Bowl of the Celebrity Red Carpet.”
The biggest fashion night traditionally takes place on the first Monday in May to raise money for the Fashion Institute in New York City, where last year’s event was moved to September due to the pandemic.
This year’s dress code is “gilded glamor” to match the theme of “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” a continuation of last year’s “In America: Fashion Glossary.”
Although Priscilla would forever represent the early rock ‘n’ roll era thanks to her relationship with Elvis Presley, it was difficult to pin her look to a particular era due to her minimalist design.
Stranger: Like Priscilla, Austin posed for Prada in a black suit. The unusual ensemble featured a shirt-like jacket with a scarf-like satin lapel, along with long sleeves that partially swallowed hands.
Company: She also joined Priscilla at the Met Gala and has been a male friend who has been seen spending time with her in recent years.
It is said that tickets to the attraction can cost as much as $35,000 a piece, while table prices range from $200,000 to $300,000, with a whopping $16.4 million raised last year for the Met’s Costume Institute.
Regina King, and her powerhouse husband Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, host this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka.
It would be Miranda’s first time as co-chair (and guest) of the Met Gala, but he had originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation.
Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the position as president, a position she has held since 1995. Her honorary fellow chairmen are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri.
As usual, the clothing theme comes from the debut exhibition In America: An Anthology of Fashion, star curator Andrew Bolton’s second two-part show that explores the roots of American style.
This exhibition will feature some of the lesser known designers, as well as some of the top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Academy Award winner Chloe Chao.
Collaborators: Join Priscilla in Black director Baz Luhrmann, who directed the upcoming biographical film Elvis about her late ex-husband
